This time I visited with friends and we sampled a variety of tapas, from skirt steak to riped plantains... yummy, it was all delicious. In my opinion, this is a five star restaurant! Thanks, Mary!

We ate here on the last night of our trip. It's a short (10-minute) cab ride from El Conquistador, and the concierge at the hotel can arrange the ride for you. We sat on the balcony, which was very romantic with the gentle Caribbean breezes! We ordered five tapas dishes, which was just the right amount for the two of... More

We have been in Puerto Rico for 4 days and all of the meals have been delicious. But this one was the best meal so far. What delicious food! We had the Mahi Mahi stuffed with shrimp and some fantastic plantain balls that were served with plantain chips. We loved the whole dinner. We also loved the pitcher of mango... More

Best paella in Puerto Rico. Friendly service although we didn't receive what we ordered (ordered 2 tapas, paella for 1 Pax, a serving of vegetables, received tapas, paella for 2 and no vegetable) but what we got was delicious.

Such a great find-wonderful food and very casual ambiance. Must have the strip steak, the croquettes, and the plantain balls. Harold, our waiter was fantastic. Helpful, funny, and genuine. Hometown hospitality and great food in one stop.

Our family had the best time here! The tapas style ordering was such an adventure. Each of our 5 (ages 7,9,11,13,15) children got to pick one tapas item and we all had such a blast trying everything. Not one dish was disappointing! I highly recommend making a reservaton. The restaurant is small and intimate. When back in Puerto Rico we... More

Arroz lelolai and shrimp made a delicious combination. The sangria and the view complemented the meal nicely.
